Description

Education for Total Liberation: Critical Animal Pedagogy and Teaching Against Specisim is an edited collection of essays from the leaders in the field of critical animal pedagogy (CAP). CAP emerges from activist educators teaching critical animal studies and is rooted in critical theory as well as the animal advocacy movement. Critical Animal Studies (CAS) argues for an interdisciplinary approach to understanding our relationships with nonhuman animals. CAS challenges two specific fields of theory: (1) animal studies, rooted in vivisection and testing on animals in the hard sciences and (2) human-animal studies, which reinforces a socially constructed binary between humans and animals and adopts abstract theoretical approaches. In contrast, CAS takes a progressive and committed approach to scholarship and sees the exploitation of nonhuman animals as interrelated with oppression of humans based on class, gender, racism. CAS promotes the liberation of all animals and challenges all systems of domination. Education for Total Liberation is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate level readers (and beyond) who wish to learn from examples of radical pedagogical projects shaped by CAS and Critical Pedagogy. Contributing to this collection are Anne Bell, Anita de Melo, Carolyn Drew, Amber E. George, Karin Gunnarsson Dinker, John Lupinacci, Anthony J. Nocella II, Sean Parson, Helena Pederson, Ian Purdy, Constance Russell, JL Schatz, William E. Shanahan III, Meneka Thirukkumaran, and Richard J, White.
